Hundreds joined hand in hand to form a lengthy human chain in the inner city of Dresden, in defiance to far-right gatherings on the anniversary of the World War II Ally aerial bombing attack on Dresden.
The human chain was formed at 18 00 local time (19 00 GMT), with the ringing of the church’s bells. The bombing of Dresden took place on February 13-15 in 1945, during which more than 1,600 acres (6.5 km2) of the city centre were destroyed by Allied airstrikes. Death toll estimates range between 22,000 and 25,000 people.
